Government monitors to be placed in newsrooms? This is FUBAR!

Written by Allen West on February 19, 2014

Thomas Jefferson, author of our Declaration of Independence stated, “our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.”

Well the first amendment freedom enshrined in our Constitution – like just about everything else about our fundamental principles – means nothing to President Obama and his administration.

I hope you’re sitting down while reading this. The Obama Administration has developed a formula of what it believes the free press should cover, and is going to send government monitors into newsrooms across America to stand over the shoulders of the press as they make editorial decisions. As reported by Red State, the FCC has apparently already selected eight categories of “critical information” “that it believes local newscasters should cover.”

I truly wish this were a “tinfoil hat story,” but the Obama Administration’s Federal Communication Commission (FCC) is poised to place government monitors in newsrooms across the country which Red State calls an “absurdly draconian attempt to intimidate and control the media.”

Thanks for the post. It's hard to keep up. I found more background at:

If you want to get goose bumps read this pdf:
"A study, titled "Research Design for the Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs," was released in April. The study was produced by a company called Social Solutions International, Inc.. SSI has been awarded hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars in federal contracts. ":

We have made the Reich by propaganda - Joseph Paul Goebbels

This is merely a means for the Obama Regime to control the propaganda.
As if they needed to do this. The leftist lapdog media has been doing a fine job without the Stasi looking over their shoulder.

No worries, it's all doubleplusgood.

This is appalling, not only because what it implies about Freedom of the Press in Obama's America; but also because most major publications are serving Obama's agenda anyway, so why bother?

Let's see how well this plays with Zeros own base. They are dumping him in droves over the NSA and other privacy infractions.

BTW, the FCC only has jurisdiction on over the air broadcasts via radio and TV. Cable, satellite and newspapers can tell them to screw if they care about the 1st amendment.

Yes, I wonder what he has to do to wake them up. Maybe this is a start. A whiff of coffee from a far away kitchen.

Once this is codified into a Fourth Branch of Government regulation, it can be used to go after any one, including those who currently dare present bits of the truth.

Gee I seem to remember a guy with a funny mustache living in Germany back in the 30's that started this sort of thing. Didn't end well.

Over the air broadcasts are not the same as live broadcasts. FCC has control of the air waves and nothing more. That is why cable channels can drop f bombs all day long and network tv gets fined for saying "shit".

Rush was saying that the ruse would be to encourage minority ownership and involvement?

Well then, anyone who opposes this is clearly a racist.
